About App Shack

Founded in 2013 (by two university students, Pontus and Simon), App Shack develops top-tier mobile apps and web solutions. With clients in both Europe and North America, we deliver cutting edge technology solutions. We're one of Sweden's fastest-growing tech companies — we won a Deloitte Fast50 Award! — and are currently looking for a team member to join our
Backend
team.

The Role

As a backend developer at App Shack, you'll collaborate with clients and fellow team members to create, maintain, and improve top-quality products. You and your team will work together to conduct product discovery, technical research, and workshops, as well as develop, test, and maintain code. You will get to know your clients and communicate with them throughout each project. In doing so, your team will create state-of-the-art apps and services, fitting your clients' needs. As a newly educated backend developer, we’ll pair you with a mentor during your first months at App Shack. You’ll work collaboratively with the team to learn our ways of working and how to handle everything from bug fixes to setting up new projects.

Who You Are

You have some experience developing and integrating APIs with apps running on the front end. You're eager to learn new things and like problem-solving. You look forward to working with your talented colleagues to build and maintain our clients' products and learn from their experiences.

Ideally, you:

  • speak and write English well
  • can communicate your great ideas as well as interpret others'
  • have experience of at least one relevant programming language (we ❤️ Python)
  • have experience with and understand the importance of tests
  • have experience with working and modelling in relational databases (we ❤️ Postgres)
  • are used to working with Linux

Bonus if you:

  • have worked in larger software development projects
  • can work with “batteries-included” frameworks like Django, Laravel, or Ruby on Rails (we ❤️ Django)
  • have experience with DevOps concepts such as IaC, CI/CD, Containers and Cloud
